Downtown Fuquay-Varina, with its two unique districts, has been a passion for Mollie Ashworth Stephenson since she stood on a stool as a little girl to run the cash register in her family’s Main Street business. As an adult, while serving as a Fuquay-Varina Town Commissioner, she attended a statewide North Carolina Downtown Development Conference in 1992 and returned home to share the Main Street message for downtown revitalization. Since that time, she has supported the town’s downtown development efforts as they evolved into the nationally accredited Main Street Program that Fuquay-Varina has today. Mollie has served on various town-appointed and Fuquay-Varina Main Street committees, as well as the Board of Directors of four different downtown organizations. In gratitude for twenty-seven years of her fun-loving spirit, enthusiasm, and unflagging support for the Town’s Main Street efforts, Fuquay-Varina is proud to honor Mollie Stephenson as a North Carolina Main Street Champion.
